4-29-2013 - Going into the Milwaukee series - the Pirates had scored 92 runs in their previous 20 games, third most in the National League across that stretch. Bucco bats cooled a bit Monday night but N.L. player of the week Russell Martin homered again - and Garrett Jones, blasted a monster two-run shot in the 8th inning...a case of too little, too late. The Bucs have dropped five straight series openers. Overall, the Pirates are 2-7 in series openers, and 13-4 in all other games.
